By Brett Hein - Standard-Examiner | May 5, 2023

After just the second Big Sky title in program history and first NCAA Tournament appearance in 23 years, the Weber State women’s tennis team fell 4-0 to No. 6 Stanford in the first round of the national tournament Friday afternoon.

Stanford, who is now 22-2 and was hosting the first- and second-round pod, has the nation’s longest winning streak at 19.

Stanford earned the doubles point when Angelica Blake and Alexis Blokhina defeated Megan Davies and Ana Morett 6-1, and Emma Sun and Alexandra Yepifanova defeated Dylan Lolofie and Megan Lombardi 6-1.

Sicely Ferreira and Kenadee Semenik had their doubles match to within 4-3 for Weber State but action was stopped with the doubles point secured for Stanford.

Of the six singles matches, Morett at No. 1 singles and Semenik at No. 5 fared the best. Stanford wrapped up three of the six matches to go up 4-0 and claim victory (only seven points are available in the team contest). Four of Stanford’s six singles players are nationally ranked in the top 100.

WSU finishes the season 12-9. The Wildcats took second in the Big Sky regular season before winning the conference tournament.

Below are the results of the singles matches:

1. Alexandra Yepifanova (STAN) def. Ana Morett (WSU) — 6-2, 6-4
